billion dollars from hurricane katrina. i mean, this is an agency that cannot manage itself. the inspector general wrote a long report last year saying the agency is mismanaged, it doesn't have systems in place that can talk to states. they can't talk to each other, they don't have the right computers in place and let me tell you, they are maning more disasters all the time. president obama has called more disasters than any other president in the last 20 years. fema is not the organization. give it to the local states, they're the people who can make these decisions and spend the money wisely. >> neil: i don't dismiss the role of a federal presence disasters like these, but when bottled water can't arrive to a site and folks supposed to weather the storm close, at antithesis of what you're supposed to adopt and send e-mails to people who don't have powers and texts to phone to people who don't have phone service, you can't make this stuff up. >> that's the problem with bureaucracy and not letting states handle this. if anybody can more money, go out to staten island right now. i have frie

this firsthand, i went down to help out with katrina thing in september. it's weird. because you are dealing with people that lost everything and it's kind of hard to imagine that if you haven't done it yourself. basically, you know, she's looking at her curtains here, she probably hand-stitched those things. maybe they have been hanging there the last 5 or 6 years. everything in the house is wrecked, photos, keepsakes, it's a tough thing. and people deal with this kind of stress in different ways. we as disaster workers, we see it all the time. but we have a word we use, professional. we try to be professional around people that have suffered a loss like this because they don't want us to come -- you don't want to go into somebody's house and be joking and having a good time. it's unprofessional. when you are dealing with somebody who has a loss like this, just think of the word professional. that's what we try to do. this sort of body language here, she's trying to comfort here, do you think she's buying it? not with that body language. she's not really buying it. some people won't. some p

, i mean, the pain of losing your home is enormous and you know, after the hurricane katrina, we did hear similar noise with about, well, we shouldn't rebuild the lower 9th ward. in fact, there was never a sweeping federal policy to avoid rebuilding the lower 9th ward and it's been partially rebuilt a a lot of home owners privately made decisions, it's appropriate. on their own, i don't wish to continue with this, i can't do that again. and i think that's probably do something similar here. and let them make their own decisions and don't come in with sweeping policies and create some defenses from new york like colin has, you should not oversimplify oversweeping decisions here. >> weigh in on this, relocate or rebuild. >> there's a couple of interesting points that you brought up. one, if we allow the the government to dictate where people live. where does it stop? are they not allowed to live in the middle of the country in tordo alley, not allowed to live in california where their hou could be consumed by a forest fire not allowed to live along the shores of the mississippi in case
into so much more, your husband was sent six weeks for hurricane katrina and it's reminiscent in light of what's happened with sandy. >> absolutely, it's interesting. in 1992 with hurricane andrew, 70% of the support forces were active duty forces and 30% were guard. with hurricane katrina. that flipped. currently with andrew there are 6600 guardsmen deployed to help out with that effort and i think the role of the citizen soldier has just become even more prominent. >> alisyn: well, you're so right and thank you for helping us appreciate the national guardsmen this morning. the book is national guard 101, a handbook for spouses. thank you for joining us. >> thank you. >> alisyn: all right. it's the fallout over the newly passed law in washington sedate that legalizes marijuana. hundreds of people now getting free passes. we'll explain. plus, in honor our troops for veterans day, we've got patriotic painting on the plaza. i'll talk to him about his inspiration next. ♪ [ female announcer ] e-trade was founded on the simple belief that bringing you better technology helps make you a be

of hurricane katrina in which we saw evacuees come with nothing. i hoped and pray we would never see that again ever and now we are. and frankly i am furious about it there is no excuse for americans to be that many days away from a battle - bottle of water and sandwich and someone giving them basic answers of why there is no help available. if you haven't made an effort i highway patrol you will. red cross.orgis a place to go for help i hope you will raise your voice with folks like staten island and long island and let them know. it is unacceptable for a government to do so little for people who need so much in a time like it is inexcuse able that in this country people are waiting to get a simple answer or something warm around their necks or a bottle of water. we celebrate the veterans day. and marine sargient dacota myer will joinnnnn >> we salute and honor members was our military as we observe veterans former marine sergeant dacota myer was awarded the award. he was the third living recipient for the medal of honor. president obama spoke about his herorism to present him with a medal of

it could top $50 billion and it would make it that second costliest storm behind hurricane katrina seven years ago. president obama is scheduled to visit the new york area next thursday to see the recovery operation firsthand. the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and over again. and expecting different results. so how does this apply to obams next four years in office? the green companies backed by your taxpayer dollars? they just grow and grow. many of them are hemorrhaging cash by the day. others have gone bankrupt altogether. our next guest is you can expect nothing but the same under this administration. a senior fellow joins us now. robert, always a pleasure to have you on the show. we assumed that it was safe to bet that the president would be doubling down on his green debt in his new administration. i hope he takes a different path. because we have seen solynda and beacon power and a123 systems. it has been extraordinarily costly. i think a better path if he is interested in green technology to reform the research and development efforts at the federal

. the charitable impulse is important. after hurricane katrina someone took charity on me and married me. but there is this next step that has to happen. picture that there is almost a cartoon-like bad guy watching what happened. wringing his hands thinking how can i make changes in the education system, housing system. all these systems in a way that can enrich communities. advocates have to be on guard and ready. the problem is that the advocates who have to be ready are oftentimes the folks who suffer the most at the hands of this disaster. i met a guy, a pastor yesterday in atlantic city who is suffering from this disaster and he's holding his son and homeless. but he's teaching other folks what do during this disaster. oftentimes, advocates aren't even ready to take on the big picture, the thing that's coming next. >> the red hook is a really good example for the need for government and investment in communities. red hook, there's amazing stories of community support, of the intern who came down and set up a clinic in red hook. because you had people who weren't getting their insuli
